Medium amber with a large but quickly dissipating head.
Smell is of particularly sweet malt
Taste is very sweet with an interesting overall taste, a bit of pepper, a bit of grass.
Overall very drinkable but not boring

Purchased a single 16oz can at Trader Joes, I think for ~$1. Pours out to a brilliantly clear medium golden, forming a tall creamy white head with very good retention and solid sheets of lacing, carbonation is moderate, ~3.0 carbs or so. The nose is lightly grassy, like fresh mown hay, a very clean ferment, a little grain husk, no DMS, no skunk (canned), no hop nose to speak of. Mouthfeel is crisp, clean, light to medium bodied, with a snappy crisp finish. The taste is quite nice. Not a pils, but a euro lager, with more malt character, minimal hop flavor and low bitterness, making this one super easy to drink. Clean finish, minimal aftertaste, just a little metallic at the end.

A quite nice pale euro lager, intended to be easily drank and quite refreshing, good for a hot summer day or with burgers and brats. Enjoyable, I would buy it again and it's nice to know that I can pick this up at Trader Joes for a very reasonable price when I'm in the mood for something like this. Sure beats its american macrobrew cousins, thats for sure.

Euro skunk stadium lager. Paid $1 per pint at Trader Joe's. Poured into a pub mug.
Look: Frothy white head, lots of carbonation, pale and filtered. Transparent body, light yellow color.
Smell: Slightly sweet, faintest hint of orange. Slightly metallic. Mostly scentless.
Taste: Not much here. Faint bready malt taste with hints of grass. The strong carbonation kills most flavor. Metallic taste is the predominant flavor here.
Feel: Watery and strongly carbonated. Frothy and fizzy.
Overall: Cheap Euro lager. Not worthwhile. Better than Miller Lite because it doesn't taste like canned shoe leather.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass because I'm a classy dude.

Pours a crystal clear golden color with a finger of bright white head. The head has pretty good retention which is super neat.

The aroma is impressively metallic, with some faint notes of wheat. Maybe something resembling orange.

The taste is very faint. Some mild grains and grass. Strong metallic aftertaste. Not getting any citrus, which is strange because this is supposed to be a citrus lager.

The feel is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Meh.

Overall, a very shitty lager but I paid a dollar for it so I can't complain too much.

A clear pale straw color with a generous fluffy white head. The foam settled quickly, leaving a wispy cap. Smells like a pale lager - not much there, a bit of grain, no hop presence. There is also a bit of buttery DMS aroma. The taste is a bit better - slightly sweet grainy malt with a very subtle floral bitterness. Also there is slight DMS in the taste. Light-bodied and medium-carbed.

Nose of grains, malt, hay, cereal, light fruitiness, seltzer. Taste moderately sweet malt, grass, bread, light floral hops, faint biscuit & orange, easy drinkable brew.
